More than 1,000 people have crossed the English Channel in small boats since Friday.
GB News can confirm the huge number, bringing the total number of migrants arriving via the treacherous crossing to 10,349 since the beginning of this year.
The latest figures make a mockery of Prime Minister Rishi Sunak‘s claims that policies aimed at stopping the small boats crisis were “beginning to work” with a 20 per cent reduction on the numbers crossing, when compared to the same period in 2022.
More than £5.5 million-a-day is currently spent on providing hotel accommodation for asylum seekers.
Official figures from the Home Office reveal that on Friday, a further 486 people were taken from 10 small boats in the Channel.
On Saturday, another 374 were intercepted in seven dinghies and taken to the processing centre at Dover harbour.
GB News can also confirm that so far on Sunday, 210 Channel migrants have been taken from four small boats by the UK Border Force.
Another dinghy has been spotted in French waters and is currently heading towards the UK.
